Well I got the VFD today and installed it. WHAT AN IMPROVEMENT over the old belt tensioning system that was on it. Just push an up or down arrow and away we go! Wonderful, thanks for the great advice.

I called VEGA and while extremely friendly they were not able to help me with documentation on this lathe. The only advice they could offer was to perhaps contact some votec schools in my area to see if they had on of these lathes. They were sold as “teaching lathes” and they understand that there are quite a few in use today.

So unless I come across something in the next week, I’ll be on the phone trying to track down some manuals. I would like to re-condition this thing just for grins and giggles. Thanks again for the GREAT tip on the VFD.
